IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 23, 2012
ROBERT ELLIOT, PLAINTIFF,
S. READDY, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Presently pending before the court are three motions to dismiss filed, respectively, by defendants McHenry Medical Group, Beck and Liu. (Dkt. Nos. 28-30.) Several other defendants have yet to be served process in this action. In addition, the court granted plaintiff's motion for appointment of counsel, and awaits notification from the court's Alternative Dispute Resolution Program that an attorney has been located who is willing to voluntarily represent plaintiff in this action. Once plaintiff has obtained legal representation, and all defendants have been served, the court will issue an order setting forth the deadline for filing responsive pleadings. Pending such order, it is premature to address defendants' current motions.*fn1
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendants' pending motions to dismiss (Dkt. No. 28-30), are denied without prejudice; the motions may be re-filed upon further notification by the court.
